A Houston arrest for prostitution or solicitation typically develops through undercover sting operations. Vice officers pretend to be potential clients or prostitutes/johns and try to trap suspects into criminal sexual actions. If you were arrested for solicitation or prostitution you will require a skilled Houston prostitution defense lawyer from the Law Office of James Alston to defend your case in court.
